I went to the Verizon store near Allentown, PA to look at the Motorola V710
phone. When I could not find it on display I asked the sales rep what
happended to it. She said it was pulled from sale because of a problem with
the camera, and could not say if and when it would be available again.

Has anyone else heard of a problem with the V710 at Verizon?

That is old news that has been discussed all over this newsgroup. After they
filter out the bad batch, the remaining phones will be made available again.
Certain batches were manufactured with a phone mispositioned.

Yes, the phones were pulled for about 2 weeks. Several of the
stores in Phoenix are getting the phones again.

Get the !!E815!! it is identical in user interface and features of the
710 save; evdo, a 1.3 mp camera and no analog (amps) service. Best of
all its only 149.99 with a 2 year contract. I got the 710 for 299.99
back in september. Silly rabbit.

So why is the E815 better than the v710? Price only? I got the v710 for
free. (150-100 for new every 2 and a $50 rebate)

Some people think that wireless broadband access is a better feature
than being able to use ancient technology in the middle of no where.
the E815 does have flash memory and over twice the internal memory of
the V710, again the only thing you are losing is AMPS service
everything else is improved including the battery life. Matt quit
wasting bandwidth with your lies and ignorance.

That is a disadvantage, yes.

It has a flash. It also has a memory card capable (currently) of 256
megs. If you need more, $30 will get you another 256M. It also has a
better quality camera, and EV-DO.

I don't see any advantage of the E815 over the V710 unless you believe
the part about 4.67 hours of talk time on a single battery charge. It's
bigger and heavier, no analog.

Oh, but the E815 can store 1000 in the addressbook vs 500 for the v710.
I don't even know that many people. And it's cabable of streaming

How about DUN over Bluetooth? I just tried it, and it works fine, albeit a
little slow in my area. Of course, the biggest advantage is full OBEX,
though it takes a seem edit to enable it. I haven't tried it yet (still
waiting for my USB cable to come), but from everything I've read it should
support all Bluetooth services, and permit file transfers, syncing, etc.

Sorry, but what's DUN?

And you can SEEM edit the 710 to get full OBEX the same way.

I didn't know that. I had thought that the 710 didn't have full OBEX.

No OBEX on the 710, according to the master phone modders on
HowardForums. Doesn't seem to be implemented in the software. It IS in
the 815, where it can be "liberated" with a seem edit.

And you don't need any mods to move pictures between the TF and internal
memory. What HAS been disabled in this area is the ability to move audio
files from the TF to the phone memory, where they can be used as ringtones.

I can BT my 710 to connect my laptop to the internet at 240,400 bps
using vzw network for only the cost of minutes. Is that DUN?

Off the shelf, you can't. I have not tried the hacks but I read that it

Ah, but there is a way to do that and it works. Here is what I have used:

<from another poster, thank you whoeveryouare>

"While the menu item to move the audio file from TF to the phone's
memory has been disabled in the current software, the technique being
referred to is to send the ringtone on the TF as a MMS message to a
bogus phone number (e.g., 555-555-5555), when when it fails, the
ringtone will be in the outbox, from which it can be saved as a
ringtone. But only if it is small enough, and of the right format (an
MP3 file renamed [not converted!] to a .mid file, I think). The HoFo
thread has specifics, and noone has said that it no longer works."

LOOK M-M I wasn't asking for your approval on my opinion, you already
have the 710 so its a moot point, quit wasting everyones time with your
pointless rhetoric about the 710 and how its vastly [un]superior. Why
don't you go somewhere else and nitpick 5 insignificant differences
between 2 other phones, im sure you will find plenty of time to do that
while you are out in the desert trying to get an amps tower to prove to
everyone what an utterly useless point you were trying to make. I on
the other hand will be surfing the internet at Evdo speeds in my car.
Great purchase on the 710 though you are way ahead of the technology
curve, it was realesed almost a year ago.

Looks like you were wrong yet again about the 710, is there any other
lies you would like to propogate? I know you would have trouble
lifting that extra 15 grams and fitting those few extra 1/100ths of an
inch in beltline of your dress. Please, I beg again, stop the needless

whatever dimwitted reply you are trying to conceive.

From what I've read at HowardForums, it can't -- OBEX isn't included in the
phone's firmware.

You can seem-edit the 710 to enable the Multimedia Studio functionality
in Motorola Phone Tools (picture/sound transfers by USB cable or
BlueTooth), but it has been determined that this is done using extended
modem functionality ("AT" commands), not OBEX profiles, so it works only
with that application. You can also re-enable the ability to move MP3
files from the TransFlash to the phone memory.

And the OBEX functionality in the 815 is only available after some
surgery on the seems.

These forums are precisely *for* expressing opinions. If you mean,

Could you explain in simple terms what "SEEM edit" and "OBEX" are?
How desirable is it to get full OBEX?
